Two people, an adult and a juvenile, were arrested in Kentucky Tuesday in connection with an early morning break-in and car theft at Harmon's Motor Sales.

A man driving past the dealership alerted Ironton police at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday that the back door of the dealership was broken. Ironton police Detective Jim Carey said officers who investigated the incident determined that a 2001 Chrysler 300 had been taken from the garage.

A few hours later, Catlettsburg, Ky., police alerted Ironton authorities that they had stopped the car on a side street off U.S. 23.
